It has recently come to my attention that some of the settings can be saved by using the seat position memory system. I know that it works with some of the Honda Sensing components. To test, turn-off the Auto Idle Stop, press and hold the seat memory button to program. If it works, the next time you start the car it will return to the setting that you programmed. If that doesn't work, I don't know another method.

No, you can't turn it off permanently. The auto-stop feature is part of the emissions testing of the car and therefore can't be disabled other than temporarily.

Perhaps the biggest benefit to the 9-speed transmission with the button controls is that the Auto-Stop disable button can be hit with a quick rock of the hand when putting the car in gear.

Auto stop-start is turned off by default if the defroster or AC is on. Otherwise, hit that button after you push start and make it a habit.
Not really. If you are demanding too much electricity, it prevents the auto-off from working temporarily (ex. high speed fan or other accessories), but as soon as the demand goes down, the auto-off will start automatically. The A/C or defrost has nothing to do with it, it is the fan on high.

It doesn’t work with idle stop. That’s what I originally tried to program in the memory seat position. I discovered the Honda Sense memory configuration this way.

probably will not work on Honda but the new Ford F150 has a work around. use the trailer plug and put one of those brake and turn signal lights in the receiver, thinks the truck is towing and no stop start. some also say the button to turn it off is to pull the switch and use a jumper wire that makes it bypass. I read both of these on F150 forum. maybe someone that has a trailer hitch could try plugging one in.

Just be thankful they gave you a button to turn it off. We just automatically start the engine, push Auto Idle Stop to off, push transmission D button every time. For us your already there.

Question, if I disable this, do I still need an AGM battery? My understanding AGM is for cars with idle stop...
If you were to PERMANENTLY disable auto stop, I suppose you could switch to a non-AGM battery. However, what provisions (if any) Honda put into the charging system for an AGM battery - I do not know. In my opinion, any savings from buying an non-AGM battery is probably not worth the risk.

I was told by the dealer whenever the check engine light comes on the VTM-4 light will also intermittently come on. The issue may not be related to VTM-4.

Can any one of you please give me idea on it? thanks a lot in advance for nice support.
